Lenny Kravitz’s appearance on the music scene was like no other. His entrance into international pop rock took place back in 1989 with his album “Let Love Rule”, now more than 20 years ago. Since then Kravitz has maintained the interest of international audiences with his songs and style. Winner of several international awards and Grammys, Kravitz’s history began inUpper Manhattan, where he grew up with his parents, who were involved in the entertainment industry of theU.S.As the story goes, Kravitz’s parents always supported his interest in being a part of the music industry. At first he wanted to play drums, which started when he was barely four years old, drumming loudly on pots and pans in their kitchen.
After moving toLos Angelesat the age of 10, Lenny Kravitz discovered important bands like Led Zeppelin, The Who and Pink Floyd, among others, which have influenced his style of rock and stage presence. After the recording of “Let Love Rule” back in the late 80s, several record companies fought to obtain this young talent, who was full of attitude, and above all, his sound that mixed R&B, blues, rock, funk and pop. “Too white to be black, too black to be white” was one way the music press described his work, and this was no doubt his success to conquering the global market. At the time, Lenny Kravitz was a clear example that the best art is always on the sidelines and a mix of different styles and references, while at the same time original.
One can recall that Kravitz was presented as the direct heir of Jimi Hendrix. Not only for his explosive style of guitars and singing, but because his image had a touch of the 60s and 70s, with his flared pants, floral shirts that were opened to expose chest hair and his very long dreads. Kravitz was the perfect combination of Hendrix, John Lennon, and Bob Marley, who were all essential to understand the intricate” and “select” musical universe.
His next album, “Mama Said” (1991), made him an international artist. The first single from that album, “Always on the Run”, which was co-written and produced with Slash of Guns N’Roses, became a success on the radio and MTV. More tours around the world, more stardom, a marriage to Lisa Bonet, who had starred on the “Bill Cosby Show”, and a turbulent romance with supermodel Adriana Lima made Lenny Kravitz the focus of paparazzi around the world.
